NCSoft has released a new Dev Speak trailer for their upcoming MMO Wildstar, this time focusing on the Spellslinger class, which is basically a dual-wielding cowboy (or girl) specializing in DPS who can also cast healing magic.
According to developer Carbine, "Once time immemorial, there have been Spellslingers. Lean, craggy types with dead eyes, their only weapons pistols, their only mailing addresses the grim and dusty wastes, their only social contact in saloons so violent that most patrons brought along their own body-bags. "
Spellslingers are strong in ranged attacks with high burst capability, mobility, and crowd control. The class relies primarily on aimed healing abilities - with some direct heal abilities for emergencies.
Check out the developer diary showing off the class in the video below.
